What Is Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse is the excessive use of drugs and alcohol without medical approval. This includes abusing a variety of substances including illicit drugs, alcohol, and prescription drugs. Generally, there is some confusion regarding the subtle differences between substance use disorders and substance abuse. Each is unique and requires a personalized addiction treatment program.

Substance Use Disorders: Substance use can range from non-patterned, infrequent consumption, to regular consumption of drugs, alcohol, or prescription medication. Substance use disorders become apparent as the consumption of the substance has any recognizable impact on the patient’s lifestyle, or has noteworthy health impacts.

Substance Abuse: Substance abuse entails some level of dependency. A patient struggling with substance abuse will likely depend on consuming the substance, consciously or not. While substance use does not necessarily denote addiction, substance abuse does.

Personalized, Lasting Addiction Treatment And Relapse Prevention: From alcohol and drug outpatient programs to family-inclusive options, we strive to offer clinics suited to any patient’s unique needs. Our treatment programs are constantly evolving, driven by evidence-based models of success. As a result, the percentage of patients still sober years after a Valley substance abuse treatment program is well above the national average.
